Last month, Volvointroduced the all-new V60 wagon, and as expected, it looks fantastic. We're big fans of the current V60, but it now looks frumpy and outdated next to the new version's slick design. Considering how similar Volvo's 90-series wagon and sedan are, we also had a feeling Volvo wouldn't change much other than the roofline when it turned the V60 into the S60 sedan. Turns out, we were correct.

We know this because Teknikens V rld, the Swedish car magazine famous for the "moose test" it conducts, recently published a photo of the new S60 sitting completely undisguised. And yes, it looks like a sedan version of the V60. Or a smaller S90. As attractive as both those cars are, that's a good thing. Sometimes the same-sausage-different-length approach to car design feels a little lazy, but at least for now, it works for Volvo.

The Inscription will come in exclusive exterior colors and feature unique details like chrome trim surrounding the grille mesh and side windows. Expect to see 18-, 19-, and 20-inch wheel options. The interior adds an impressive-looking crystal gear shift knob and the Driftwood inlays that were first used on the XC60. Pricing for the new model will be announced closer to the XC40 Inscription's launch.

SPIED : 2019 Volvo S 60 looks like a baby S90 in this leaked photo. Volvo ' s redesigned midsize sedan gets caught sans camo. The next-generation Volvo S 60 isn't due to break cover for another few weeks, but someone has already spotted the new midsize sedan completely undisguised .

It also looks like Volvo's changed a couple of things to differentiate the new S60 from the larger S90. For example, the license plate has been moved from the bumper to the trunk, and the character line that runs along the side of the car adds a sportier feel. It also looks like the trunk lid has an integrated decklid spoiler, but that may not be standard across the board. After all, as nice as those black wheels look, they're probably not what we'll see on a base S60.

As far as the front end goes, Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson recently shared a photo of a camouflaged S60 that gives us a pretty clear idea of how it will look.

Based on what we've seen so far, the new S60 will be one seriously good looking car. Volvo may have tweaked a few things here and there, but the V60's grille, headlights, and bumper all appear to be unchanged on this S60 prototype. The black wheels also look identical to the ones shown in the photo of the undisguised car.

Thankfully, we shouldn't have to wait long to drive Volvo's upcoming BMW 3 Series fighter. The official reveal is planned for this summer, with production beginning later this year.

Some Madman Hacked His Volvo 240 Door Chime to Play 'Africa' by Toto .
The Internet's favorite song in one of the most malaise cars.Somehow the Internet unofficially elected Toto's 1982 hit "Africa" as the official song of the internet sometime back in 2017. But despite the song being over 35 years old, it's still making the rounds as an ironic hit. Regardless, the Internet also spawns weird communities, and even weirder niches when you start merging different cultures like the kind that love old malaise-era cars and also memes.
